Tracking bing ads? Please also read the bottom section of this guide.
To track any misc source simply ad a source link parameter with the name of the source you would like to track to the end of a URL.
For example, if you want to track “Pintrest” and my ad link “mysite.com” then just ad “?sl=pintrest” to “mysite.com”.
The final url would look like this “mysite.com?sl=pinterest”. Place this URL in any misc ad sources you would like to track.
HYROS will then create a source named “pintrest” and being attributing clicks and sales to it.

Individual Source Link Tracking
To track specific traffic sources just change the text that comes after “=”
For example “sl=pintrestpost1”. This will create a source automatically named “pintrestpost1”.
For example, if you create 3 sources using this method such as “pintrestpost1”, “pintrestpost2” and “pintrestpost3” then when you load up a report you will be able to see how much traffic is coming in via each post. This can be useful for tracking the performance of individual sources/ads.
To track Bing ads by campaign name, all you need to do is attach the following parameter to all of your ads:
Then you should see the campaign name populate in the URL when the ad is clicked on. For example, the URL will look something like this:
This will create a source with that campaign name when a user clicks on the ad. If you’d like to track the ad with a different name, then just use the workflow in the video guide above.
